New Amenities for Tech Office Space Tenants
Salesforce just announced that it will be creating new Ohana Floors at the top of their offices for employees, customers, partners and even the local community’s use. The first launch was at Salesforce East in San Francisco. It boasts 360-degree views where they host events, town halls, networks, meetings, and fundraising. The idea of “Ohana” floors stemmed from the Hawaiian word for family. All of Salesforce’s floors incorporate the Ohana principles. They are meant to bolster collaboration, sustainability, wellness, and community. Salesforce plans to unveil this new amenity in New York, Indianapolis, and London.
When designing their office spaces, their goal has been to blend open seating for marketing/sales groups mixed with a bullpen for engineers hoping to increase productivity. In addition, Salesforce has added social lounges with great light and views to allow for more interaction amongst the diverse workforce on each floor. They have continued to stray away from the traditional office space environment to channel their focus on collaboration and reinforcing employee satisfaction.
